Uniden cordless home phone. What is not stated on the box
I went shopping for a replacement cordless home phone and thought i would upgrade the features but go for the same brand as before eg uniden. After browsing the display shelves i decided on the uniden xdect 5135 + 1. The printing on the box appeared to say all of the right things eg dual mode bluetooth to connect my mobile and the big plus " intergrated digital answering machine". Most of my friends are getting rid of their land line phones and are just using their mobiles . So they could call anytime i thought the answering machine function wo...uld be a big plus. After setting it up with my personal voice message i decided to use my mobile and leave a message. Guess what.No message. After much frustration i find in the hand book (page 35) a single line comment. " the answering machine works with landline calls only". I phoned uniden help desk only to have that point confirmed and to be advised none of their phones are able to record messages from mobiles. How silly in a world where mobile phone usage is huge. Also false advertising by uniden not to have this displayed somewhere on the outside of the box.
